Holiday Gift Basket Ideas for Coffee & Tea Lovers


Shopping for a coffee or tea lover this holiday season and looking for a thoughtful, personalized gift? To help make your gift shopping more fun and convenient, we’ve rounded up some unique holiday gift basket ideas below.


What to Put in a Coffee Gift Basket or Tea Gift Basket


Mix and match items from the suggestions below and add in any other items you come across or think of that would be a perfect fit for your loved one.


A Selection of Coffee or Tea


Of course, it wouldn’t be a coffee or tea gift basket if it didn’t include some actual coffee or tea. However, while it’s great to include your recipient’s favorite type of coffee or tea, it’s also fun to include a few different types coffees or teas for them to sample.


To add to the festivity of the basket, you may want to incorporate a specialty seasonal coffee roast. For example, someone who prefers a strong cup of coffee will enjoy our Holiday Blend Dark Roast. This roast offers a rich flavor with dark chocolate notes and a hint of spice.


If your recipient prefers a something with a holiday flavor (and aroma), our Limited Edition Cookie Butter Medium Roast Coffee will make a great choice. With notes of cinnamon and creamy cookie butter, and with a nice ginger finish, this is a favorite seasonal blend.


Flavors to Make Specialty Beverages


Customize your gift basket for the holidays by including one or more flavors that your recipient can use to create delicious seasonal coffee beverages at home.


Our Cookie Butter Powder, Peppermint Chocolate Powder and Red Velvet Powder are all popular, limited edition items that will add even more delight to your gift basket and give your recipients more scrumptious flavors to try.


Baked Goods


We can’t think of any better complement to a nice, warm cup of coffee or tea than a baked treat. Whether you decide to include your own homemade holiday cookies, or put in some favorite store-bought goodies, one thing is for certain: they won’t last long! 


Mug or Tumbler


The coffee and tea lovers we know can never have too many mugs or tumblers. And we’re guessing the same may be true for your gift basket recipient. Plus, it’s nice to replace some older ones with a fun, new design every once in a while!

If your friend or family member also happens to be a fan of Friends, then our 20 oz. Central Perk Ceramic Mug will bring a smile to their face and get plenty of use. For on-the-go coffee and tea drinkers, our 20 oz. Mint Green Stainless Steel Thermal Tumbler features a seasonally chic design. And our 12 oz. Ceramic Snowman Tumbler is just too adorable for words!

Gift Card

Gift cards always make a great addition to a gift basket and a The Coffee Bean® gift card is the perfect one to include in a coffee or tea themed one. We have physical gift cards, as well as e-gift cards available, making it easy for your recipient to shop at a nearby location (if applicable) or online.

Coffee or Tea Gift Subscription

A coffee or tea gift subscription is a gift that will keep on giving well beyond the holidays. At The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®, you can choose from our coffee collection or our tea collection and then select a delivery frequency. We offer two subscription frequency options: once a month for 3 months or once a month for 6 months.
